Glitter All Around

Hi again!

Have you had a nice christmas time? 
I really enjoy to be with my family and to see a few of my friends again.

Yesterday I spend a whole day with my best friend and brought around 50 polishes to her place ;) So we spend a lot of our time with talking about nail art and I ended up painting her any my nails.
And somehow we both choose glitter ^^

1) My Manicure

Polishes I used:
  • Wild & Mild - 1$ Bill
  • Essence Nail Art Special Effect Topper - 10 Glorious Aquarius
I used 2 coats of the soft mint polish and on top one coat of the turquoise glitter. It is btw an amazing glitter topcoat with multiple sized turquoise glitter particles, holographic glitter and copper hexagon glitter.

My Friend´s Manicure
  • China Glaze - Hello Gorgeous
  • Essie - A Cut Above
  • China Glaze - Sweet Hook
I used Sweet Hook as a base coat and then started to create a soft gradient with Sweet Hook. To make the effect a little bit more bling I painted on a tiny layer of A Cut Above. The glitter particles are way bigger and made the gradient more stand out.

Enjoy the last day of 2012 :)

Easy Christmas Tree Nails

Ho ho ho!!!

I hope you all enjoyed christmas very much and celebrated with your family and friends :)

I am right now in Germany to see my family and seriously brought more than 50 polishes with me because I could not decide which I may need or not :D My dad said already "child, I love you, but you are crazy" 

Yesterday I went to see one of my grandmas and I created christmas tree nails for her.

Polishes I used:
  • O.P.I. DS - Extravagance
  • O.P.I. - Don´t Mess With OPI
  • Claire´s Polish - Copper & Gold
  • Wet ´n Wild Fast Dry - Party of Five Glitters
  • Wild & Mild Nail Art Pen - Red
  • Wild & Mild Nail Art Pen - Yellow
  • Essie Good To Go as a topcoat
First I applied Extravagance as my base color. It is so damn sparkly and perfect, almost a 1 coater :)

After I used scotch tape to create a triangle shape and painted over with my green polish.
After I removed the tape I painted on my pointer and ring finger some of the multi-glitter and on my thumb, middle finger andn pinkie I used the gold & copper glitter - but always just for the trees.

As an extra detail I tried to paint on some candles with the red and yellow nail art pens, but this is just optional.

I finnished with gluing on a tiny star on top of my christmas trees and applied a fast drying topcoat.

Enjoy the rest of your week!!!

Christmas Nail Designs 2012

Merry Christmas Everybody!!!

Yes it is true - I am back :D

I am seriously sorry that I havent done ANYTHING in the last few month... kinda embarassing actually.
But I was so damn stressed with job and moving and othr trouble that I just... didnt do anything. Just average colours. 

But now the dark times are (for now) over ^^

Since it is christmas time I designed a few things this year which I wanted to show you guys.
I unfortunately didnt do any progress pictures but at least the final results.

1) Present Nails
These nails I did already in the end ov november, and they were suuuper short. But whatever :D

I used pink as a base color, red glitter as a topper and created the presents with a white striper brush ;)

2) Winter Landscape Nails
Bad bad light but I hope you can still see well :)

Pearl blue as a background, snow with a white striper brush, trees with a tiny nail art brush and snow with a dotting tool :)

3) Snowflake Nails 

Metallic blue (or blurple, it has a touch of purple in real) as a base, OPI Pirouette My Whistle glitter on top and snowflakes with a white striper brush ;)

I hope you liked it and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

31 Day Challenge 2012 - Day 30: Inspired By A Tutorial

Hiiiiii Babez ^^

Late like always..I know I know :D
My camera somehow kinda died today, so I can only show you ONE picture which turned out okay, the rest went blurry and weird...  I hope it is again just the battery - pleeease >_<

I REALLY really need a new one, since my good Panasonic Lumix cam broke in june I just have these ultra old canon and we alays fight with each other. She makes a lot of macro shots very blurry, (you anyway have to go away soo far until she is fine with the distance), is totally sensitive about "too dark" or "too light" situations and makes me crazy - I should order a new one already from Amazone Germany *grrrr*

Okay - the tutorial I used is this one:

Yeah, underwater nails ;) I was so out of any ideas and accidently found this video and thought...okay ;)

I created some of the same ideas but changed my design a little with own accents - I hope you like it ^^

I will try tomorrow to take a picture of the polishes I used when the cam is hopefully fixed :)


Since this horrible *lol* 31 day challenge is over tomorrow I will start latest in the middle of the upcoming week to announce my 100th follower giveaway - so stay tuned and check out what you can win ;)

See ya! ^^

31 Day Challenge 2012 - Day 29: Inspired By The Supernatural

Hiiiii ;)

How are you girls? I am between life and death because of my flu and might have a special connection to the supernatural today loool. 

Okay. Supernatural. Sounds spooky, scary, dark... all things I DONT like >_<
I am a person who is very sensitive, super easy so scare and super afraid of supernatural stuff :D I would NEVER survive a haloween in america :)

So I thought what else I can do, and started to google. and then it came - the nice side :) Elfs, fairies, angels, good witches and mermaids - and here we go:

Cat (me) created a mermaid tail design ^__^

Polishes I used:
  • Golden Rose White Nail Art Polish
  • Viva La Diva ..I am not sure about the number...
  • Kone Helsinki "U28"
  • China Glaze "Techno"
  • Wild and Crazy "Free Will"

I started painting my nails with one coat of the pearl white polish. After I choose a very sheer purple and turquoise and painted one coat over the pearl polish. It is really very very sheer :D Then I picked my white nail art polish and created the diamond pattern. After I applied one more coat of the purple and turquoise to make the white pattern a little bit more...subtle. Now you can see HOW sheer it is :D
Here one picture before I added the holographic glitter.

Then, to create the effect of fish skin I applied one coat of my amazing China Glaze holographic glitter - you have no idea HOW sparkly it is, you can see any colour of the rainbow :)

I really have to take some daylight pictures today - maybe I even find some sun ^^

Here one close up of the bottle...isn´t it incredible? *___*

I am very happy with my design and will for sure re-create it one day :)

See you tomorrow!!!

31 Day Challenge 2012 - Day 28: Inspired By A Flag

Hey Everybody :)

I am back ^^ Still ill but way better and now I was able today to do my flag-nails, since I am already 24h too late :D

I choose the flag on Finland since it is just the most bautiful country in the world <3
I live there now since 4 years and I think it is the most wonderful experience I ever made. I hope to stay many more years :)

Polishes I used:
  •  O.P.I. "Yodel Me On My Cell"
  • Sally Hansen Gem Crush "Showgirl Chic"
  • Sally Hansen Insta Dri "Whirlwind White"

I used 2 coats of the beautiful dark shimmery blue and used tape and white to create the finnish flag on 2 of my nails. Then I choose the amazing silver/blue glitter polish to create a glitter-tip on the other 3 nails.

I think it turned out super nice and I am sad that I have to remove it already.

See you tomorrow for day 29 :)
